These are 2 examples of City Beautiful issues happening just earlier this month. In La Palma, CA, a small, affluent neighborhood where billboards are not allowed, they are in the process of getting 2 giant digital billboards because of the revenue they see it bringing in for the city. Interesting abandonment of their ideals for money. And in West Hollywood, CA, a neighborhood is complaining about the new modern, boxy style of houses that are popping up along their streets and the way it hurts their image.
